I try to understand what you imply :).
You mean that some people would be interested to have an environment on 
mac OS X that looks like a mac application and not squeak :) and that 
they would deploy applications I imagine with Seaside
running on other platforms. Do I imply correctly that this would be 
targeted at non squeakers?
Is it correct?
